Photophobic Zano, arrives in the city for the very first time. The year is 1984 and Athens beckons. A vampire and a fine dancer, Zano quickly gets devoured by the dark underbelly of the capital city. All he really wants is a ''warm'' girl. One night, he meets Alice, an attractive young prostitute, at his favourite disco Zardoz, and together, along with her mute dealer, they set off on a journey into the unknown.


The title and the film are inspired by a 1984 song of the same name by the band Horis Peridereo.

"Norway" is Yannis Veslemes' first feature length film and was a nominee for the East of West Award at Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. It won the FIPRESCI Prize at Thessaloniki Film Festival (2014).
